One Sure Way to Find Out

A day after the U.K.'s Daily Telegraph reported photos of prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib included what U.S. Army Major Antonio Taguba called "torture, abuse, rape and every
indecency," both the Pentagon and White House have denied the story. Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman said the newspaper "completely mis-characterized the images," while Robert Gibbs said he wouldn't read British press reports "if I was looking for something that bordered on truthful news." So much tiptoeing around the  pictures is surely counter-productive to truth-telling. The answer, of course, is to see them.
